Gorgeous Autumn Foliage in Acadia National Park

I’m glad I headed up Cadillac Mountain yesterday on my way home from the annual Maine Association of Realtors Convention to capture the foliage this year; today’s wind and rain may just cause many of the peak-colored leaves to fall.


The Simple Beauty of Winter in #Maine…

There is an abundance of beauty in cold and snow, you just have to be open to seeing it.

Waterfalls in Acadia National Park, #Maine…

If I had the tripod with me, these could have been so much better. Guess I’ll just have to go back this Fall and shoot some more 🙂

The crisp morning air in mid to late August on MDI reminds me that foliage season is approaching…this was on the Parkman Mountain trail, looking up at one of the Rockefeller bridges.

this was taken as we headed out on the Sea Princess nature cruise; we’re just around the bend from Northeast Harbor, Maine and the Cadillac Mountain range is in the background.

for those of you who don’t know about a “cairn”, it’s a directional marker on a hiking trail, often created because there are no trees around to mark to lead the hiker in the right direction. Often on bald or rocky sections, “cairns” are created to allow the hiker to follow. Sometimes rocks are painted, or have a blue “blaze” paint mark on them, but “cairns” are much more fun and have personality. Sometimes people add to them. They’re sculptural.

A great new Acadia National Park iPhone app by Chimani!

Chimani has just introduced this fabulous new iPhone application for Acadia National Park! Since I live on MDI surrounded by Acadia, I was happy to give it a test run.

It’s stocked with loads of information – hiking and biking trail information, sunrise and sunset times, loads of maps, ranger events, the Island Explorer free shuttle service locations/information and an auto tour with audio containing informative details about Acadia National Park. It’s like having a private tour guide in your car!

The visual aspect is one I can appreciate. There are beautiful photos, detailed maps (complete with contour lines) and it’s easy to navigate. This is a serious electronic guide book – handy in size and as detailed as you would need. It contains plenty of history about the trails and the trail construction (much like my favorite book “A Walk in the Park” by Tom St. Germain). But there are times when you don’t have a guide book with you. This is convenience without compromising any details.

I highly recommend you download this app. Nicely done, Chimani!
